"One way Los Angeles continues to lead the renewable energy movement is by making it easier for companies like SolarCity to do business here," said Englander. "The growth of solar in our community acts as a job creator and economic stimulus."

SolarCity has grown to become the #1 full-service solar power provider in California and the U.S. by making it possible for customers to install solar panels for free and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility bills. More homeowners, schools, and businesses today are making the switch to solar to reduce their electricity costs and use clean, renewable power.

"Chatsworth alone enjoys 279 days of sunshine annually, which is about 35 percent higher than the national average and makes the San Fernando Valley ideal for solar power and the savings it brings," said Jim Cahill, SolarCity's regional vice president of operations for Southern California. "We're delighted to have a home in the Valley and look forward to creating more local jobs as we expand our services for homeowners and businesses in the region."

SolarCity was chosen earlier this year as winner of the Sustainable Business Award by the Sustainable Business Council of Los Angeles for its outstanding contribution to the region's green economy.
